The Russian president thanked Qishan and the Chinese delegation of nearly 200 people for participating in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

The Chinese vice president also conveyed words of greeting from Xi Jinping to the Russian leader. He concurred with Putin’s estimation of the level of cooperation between both countries, noting that their relations "continue to develop dynamically and have reached a new, unprecedentedly high level." The Chinese official noted the close economic cooperation between both countries, namely in the sphere of energy. Russia and China also collaborate in the sphere of humanities and politics.

According to Qishan, Chinese-Russian relations have an effect "not only on the Eurasian region, but on the entire world." However, he stressed that the countries face "not only opportunities, but also many challenges, risks and uncertainties.".
